What is eDiscovery?
Electronic Discovery is the collection, processing, analysis, review, and disclosure of documents in electronic form in response to litigation or investigation. Having the right eDiscovery plan is a critical part of a company’s overall strategic response and can help companies keep costs down, maintain control over their data and strategy, and avoid data protection or data transfer violations.
While a number of companies provide simple external hosting and review services, many are unaware that the increase in global privacy legislation has resulted in strict limits on the transfer of data across national borders with severe criminal and civil penalties for violations. In addition, many jurisdictions may have state secrecy constraints (such as China and many of the former Soviet Union states) which can involve security and compliance concerns. With the increase in data volume and complexity, an eDiscovery exercise can quickly escalate into a costly “fishing expedition” if not properly managed.
We are uniquely qualified in this area, having worked on numerous complex cross-border investigations supporting our clients with litigation and investigation expertise. We have advised clients globally in all major industry sectors while ensuring compliance with local data protection laws and cultural nuances.
